Track for Steel Venom at Valleyfair has arrived. Only 2 pieces of track are on-site, but many of the supports for the ride are there, including the launch track supports, as well as some supports for one of the spikes.
Yellow? Cedar Fair really went Six Flags lol. I wish we'd get an impulse in Europe :(
The artist's rendition is exactly that - a rendition. They edited a photo of Wicked Twister so the back spike would be straight.
It's your standard issue Intamin Impulse, I'm afraid to say.

P.S. I have a REAL picture of Steel Venom's progress (as of Feb. 8) at http://www.itsjustabuck.com/Andy/Dsc00010%20-2.jpg. I will try and continue taking pictures at least once a week.*** This post was edited by GraffMan 2/10/2003 2:15:30 PM ***
with that said SV i kno wasnt the choice of many people that go toVF for a new rollercoaster it goes up and down up and down not to forget the twist at one end, What i think they sould have done @ VF is dismanteled the Excalibur, yes it would be a disapointment to some people that acctually like the ride but doing that would open up a great amount of room for somthing worth the wild. Granted its too late and it will be another decade (so it will feel like) before VF will get a new coaster if they took it out then there would be room for a B&M or whatever type of "actuall" coaster in its spot
Non the less everyone knows that SV will live up to what its going to be just because people have been waiting forever to get a inverted coast @ VF. It makes ya think, for those who dont leave the state of MN you wonder if they even kno what an inverted coaster is hehehe! This year will be my first year working @ VF and i hope to have more info for all the people that wanna hear or E-mail me @ firstname.lastname@example.org
